Jasper Fforde: One of Our Thursdays Is Missing
All Kansas City Public Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 26, and will remain closed all day Thursday, November 27, for Thanksgiving.
Jasper Fforde helps celebrate the 2011 Winter Reading season with a discussion of One of Our Thursdays Is Missing—the latest installment in his best-selling Thursday Next series, which started with The Eyre Affair.
As an all-out genre war threatens BookWorld, the Council of Genres needs literary detective Thursday Next—but she has retired. So the Council enlists the written version of Thursday Next to lead a peacekeeping mission up the Metaphoric River in this gleeful blend of satire, romance, and thriller with literary allusions.
The Eyre Affair is one of the suggested readings for the 2011 Adult Winter Reading Program.
